Spec Ops description

Wardriving is the sixteenth Special Ops mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and the first in Delta tier. It features a suburban area of Virginia, USA that is in the campaign mission "Exodus".

The Infinity Ward best time for Wardriving is 3 minutes 25.25 seconds.

Overview Edit

The player must enter houses and download enemy intel from each of the house you can enter. The player will start at the beginning with a Stryker (callsign 'Honey Badger ') following the squad. The player will have a laser pointer to designate targets for 'Honey Badger' at the start of the mission. In each house, a laptop will be found which intel can be downloaded from. Once the download has begun, a large group of enemies will appear and enter the house, attacking the player and interrupting the download wirelessly if they get close to it. It is suggested that the player sets up claymores and, if there are any, turrets before beginning the data transfer and start with the house at the end of the block because it has the most turrets and claymores available. Also, the claymores and turrets may be picked up to be used in the next house and so on. The data transfer progress will be noted on the top of the screen, starting out with hacking into the laptop and then downloading all the files. Once the player has downloaded the last piece of intel, a large enemy force will arrive and the player will be asked to return to the Stryker, which will be located at the other end of the street near where the player started. There is also an Ammunition Crate to the right of Honey Badger's original location. It would be a bad idea to get in front of the Stryker while it is moving, as it may and will run the player over, making the player start from the beginning.

Trivia Edit

  • Wardriving is a networking term, when a person or group drives around a suburban or urban area, marking down all of the non-secured wireless access points, or networks, and where they are located. This is correct as this mission is to download unmarked hostile intelligence.
  • If the player doesn't use the laser designator, Foley will give the player an explanation about painting the targets. This is a reused sound file that can be heard in "Exodus".
